Sometimes I just don't get it. Life just doesn't make sense.
Like in high school, I wore makeup everyday. And not just eye makeup like I do now, but full-on concealer, foundation, powder, blush--the works. And I never washed my face. I mean, I would rinse the makeup off in the shower, but I didn't shower everyday, and I went to bed with makeup on nearly every night.
And I had perfect skin. (So I'm really not sure why I was wearing so much makeup in the first place--teenagers, bah!)
Then I got to college, and realized that makeup was way too much effort and stopped wearing so much, and less often. I'd like to say that I started washing my face regularly, but that would be lying.
And I broke out like nothing else. In fact, there was a while where one side of my face was so riddled with bumps that I looked like a before and after picture for some acne treatment. We even drew a line down my face and took a picture, though not with my camera, so I don't have a copy, or I'd share. (Lisa, if you have one, feel free to send it my way.)
Wouldn't it make sense to have better skin when I put less junk on it?
Another, more current situation.
I had braces, like many of you, I'm sure. And while I brushed my teeth at least once a day all through high school (you really can't go to school without brushing your teeth if you want people to talk with you), I flossed, like, never. Even after I got the braces off, I still never flossed.
And I never had cavities.
Since I got married nearly five years ago, I've only skipped flossing twice. Or maybe three times, I'm not really counting. And I brush my teeth way better than I did in high school, but I just got back from the dentist yesterday, and I get to go back next week to have not one, not two, but three cavities filled.
Yes, they are small. And yes, one is actually to replace one of those lovely metal fillings that I've had since before I can remember. But really? Cavities? Why now?
If someone could shed some light on this conundrum, I would really appreciate it.
